ESP Psychokinesis and Psychics

ESP Psychokinesis and Psychics

by Joanne Austin




Psychic phenomena range from strong intuitions, to hearing spirit voices, to seeing visions of distant places. Psychics often experience such events in the form of dreams, trances, or unusual sensations. ESP, Psychokinesis, and Psychics surveys different types of psychic abilities and examines several popular psychics. It looks at skeptics and organizations that investigate possible fraud and discusses portrayals of psychics in popular media, as on the TV shows Ghost Whisperer and Medium. Finally, readers are given the information they need to test and develop their personal psychic abilities.
